There’s a lot of pressure that comes with furniture shopping in Toronto. When you’re going to be living with a piece for years to come, you really want to get it right the first time. With the right mind set (and the right company) you can have more fun furniture shopping than you ever thought possible.
Throughout Toronto there are many well-stocked furniture stores, so there is sure to be one near you. One of the city’s longest standing stores, The Chesterfield Shop, has locations in Mississauga, New Market, North York, Scarborough, and an urban location at Yonge south of Eglinton. You should try to find a store that offers free design service and “newlywed bonuses,” which can really help young couples with choice furniture selections for their new lives. For customer convenience, you need fast and reliable delivery service on special orders from a catalog or a hand-picked selection from one of the store locations near you. If you can’t wait to see the piece in your home, next-day delivery is also something to keep an eye out for.
The fun really starts when you get that quality piece (or pieces) home. You might be surprised and will definitely be thrilled with your new modern furniture. New eco-friendly programs have been encouraging the use of soybean-based cushions that are both comfortable and stylish. The Bio-Plush cushion available at The Chesterfield Shop has a smaller carbon footprint than cushions made out of traditional materials. Imagine coming home after a long day at work and relaxing on your new sofa or chair. You will have a restful, even regenerating experience that reminds you that you made the right purchase for your lifestyle, and cut back on the carbon footprint of your decision.
Reducing the carbon footprint is not a fashion trend; it makes a real impact on the environment. Your new sofa and loveseat should be made with “green” Bio-Plush soybean-based cushions. You will feel good knowing that your new modern furniture is constructed with natural seed-based oils, decreasing the need for fossil fuels, which are becoming out of style and unhealthy for our environment. Better retailers are now using a recycling program, so any time is a good time to update and enjoy new seating that’s good for you (and the environment). As you search for contemporary furniture stores across Toronto, be sure to find retailers that take their environmental responsibility seriously.
Of course, the two most important factors are going to be great value and great selection. If you’ve just purchased a condo in the city, your best bet is to stay in the city and look at “urban” stores that specialize in the kind of items that fit smaller condo spaces, whether they’re new construction or older and a little roomier. While you shop, be sure to also check out the furniture accessories. New rugs, lamps, or pillows are just a few examples of the possibilities that can add some luxury and warmth to your new home.
